MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. The glass for the sides is done. I've got it covered in tape for protection. The "glass" is .060 Plexiglas, so the optical clarity is outstanding. The window frames form a ledge that the glass lays on from the inside. When I make the interior walls, I'll make the window openings the same size as the outer frame openings. As the glass is the same thickness as the body sides (.060), the glass will be trapped. No glue needed. I'll probably flow some Future, or whatever it's called now, around the edges to tack the glass in place before trapping it. I notice I missed some lower side detail, so that's next.
  2. Sides are pretty much there. Now it's time to make windows while the sides are still separate and easy to handle. I have added the lower trim on the door after this picture was taken.
  3. Very nice. First time I've seen that grille on a finished model. Are you going to do a trailer for it? I never noticed the headlight issue before. They ARE sunk a bit, aren't they? I'll incorporate that detail into future builds! Thanks for the tip!
  4. I just started this Winnebago project. I wanted to get a bit of a start before starting a topic. I'm to the point of adding the ribbing on the sides. There are pros and cons for adding the ribbing before windows and details, or after. I thought it served me better in this case to add it last. It's all sheet styrene, Evergreen strips, or cast copies of various louver arrangements. This will probably be on again, off again, as I will have paying projects to do here and there. Follow along if you have the time. MODERATOR: If this should be in the Big Rig section, please move it.
  5. Big '70s Lincolns, Cadillacs, Furies, Ninety Eights, Electras, that sort of thing. Do it promo style to save money. These would be niche offerings.
  6. Sounds interesting. What are you looking for? I'm mostly replica stock, don't have much racing stuff.
  7. What color is it molded in/painted?
  8. First, Yes, these are Robert Burns (except for the Monaco, that was stevswai-0 ) Second, I'd love to see your bodies when you get them. and finally, the 98 interior is all me except for a '76 Caprice interior pan minus the door panels. Thank you for your supportive words.
  9. I've been buying 3D printed bodies when I can afford them. They don't come with interiors (yet), so I'm making my own. First is the 1972 Monaco. The front of the body was much wider than the rear, so I pie cut the body so both ends were the same width. I also added a windshield area from a 1978 Monaco. It may not be entirely accurate, but I like using kit windshields, because it looks like the completed model came that way. Next is the 1976 Olds 98. I added a windshield from a 1973 ElDorado. Due to my botching the upload, The 98 body is pictured last, but the interior for it follows: 1973 Lincoln. Added windshield from 1970 Ford, added the "peak" to the back window. 1970 Fury. Added .045 to bottom of car all the way around to "thicken it up". Added windshield from 1/24 Yodel police car. Added "Plymouth" to hood from casting off 1967 Plymouth Fury. Scratchbuilt turn signal indicators. Next model to get an interior.
  10. Can't wait to see it. I need to build one, too. When I build trucks, they're almost always fleet trucks.
  11. I'm amazed at how well you've handled the foiling. I've used it almost since it came out, and I'm having adhesion and other difficulties as of late. Can you offer any insight or advice? Goes without saying, but I'll say it...Beautiful car!
  12. Hey, at least they're acknowledging the problem and trying to correct it. Good news finally.
  13. Read the thread. Really too bad, I find BMF an indispensable product. Well, at least I know it's not just me. Thanks for the link.
